administration has not delivered on its campaign promises, things like dismantling the department of education, getting rid of the department of energy, cutting down on government spending. clearly government spending is far more than it was when reagan took office. taxes are greater. in terms of performance, in terms of delivering our campaign promises in 1988 think it is indeed a failure in that sense. now, it's a success in another sense, namely that i think that the level of debate has been raised in our country on a whole range of issues. a key one is the legitimate role of government in a free society. c-span: that is a call in show here at the end of the reagan administration. what is your reaction when you hear that today? >> guest: well, there is not much that has changed. we still need to ask, or settle, what is the legitimate role of government in a free society and a legitimatlegitimat e role of government in a free society is not that of government taking what belongs to one american and giving it to another american to whom it does not the long. c-span: have you ever in your life

government collects, leaving nothing for education, national defense, or other essential programs. we have no illusion that putting our country on a sound and responsible fiscal course will be easy. it clearly will not. our government is divided and conflicted because the american people are divided and conflicted. but we cannot ignore this crisis any longer. nor can our leaders. as important as economic growth is, we can't grow our way out of this problem, and we certainly can't tax our way out. what we must address is the fundamental reality that due to our aging society, and increased life expectancy, the entitlement programs written and designed for an earlier era must be revised. we are not talking about cuts in absolute terms. we are simply talking about slowing the rate of increase, and this can be achieved with reasonable adjustment phased in over a number of years. comprehensive tax reform is another essential part of the solution to our fiscal crisis. the right kind of tax reform will make us more competitive across the globe, and empower our businesses, small and large, here at

without shortchanging things like education, job training, research and technology all which are critical to our prosperity in a 21st century economy. but spending cuts must be balanced with more reforms to our tax code. the wealthiest individuals and the biggest corporations shouldn't be able to take advantage of loopholes and deductions that aren't available to most americans. and as i said earlier this week, one thing i will not compromise over is whether or not congress should pay the tab for a bill they've already racked up. if congress refuses to give the united states the ability to pay its bills on time, the consequences for the entire global economy could be catastrophic. the last time congress threatened this course of action, our entire economy suffered for it. our families and our businesses cannot afford that dangerous game again. i congratulate the newly sworn- in members of congress, and i look forward to working with the new congress in a bipartisan way. if we focus on the interests of our country above the interests of party, i'm convinced we can cut spending and raise re
